Cotswolds scarp

Large version - Comment at flickr.com

Photoblog: 15 Oct 2007

The view from the monument to William Tyndale above North Nibley on the scarp of the Cotswolds Hills in Gloucestershire. The 111 ft (34 m) tower of 1866 has views out over the estuary of the River Severn between Bristol and Gloucester, over to the Forest of Dean and Monmouthshire, as well as inland over the Cotswolds.Tyndale was a 16th century protestant reformer who was born nearby. Tyndale translated the bible into English, for which he was imprisoned at Vilvoorde, near Brussels, in 1536, tried for heresy, and burnt at the stake.

Photoblog: 07 Oct 2007

With Bournemouth in the background. Old Harry Rocks at Ballard Down near Swanage, are where the Purbeck Hills meet the English Channel. The Purbeck Hills are part of the Southern English chalk formation, famous for the South Downs, White Cliffs of Dover, and Salisbury Plain. The Purbeck Hills were once continuous with the chalk downs of the Isle of Wight, and Old Harry's stacks are mirrored by The Needles. This is the eastern limit of the 95 mile long "Jurassic Coast" world heritage site.

If anybody finds a 72mm Nikon lens cap up here, it's mine.
